And honestly the idea of the playoffs being a learning experience is BS unless you can compete to some degree. Getting smoked in 4 straight teaches you nothing. Except that you're not good enough yet. Which is something you can also learn by finishing 9th in the conference.
We've played Miami very well this season. I don't see us getting blown out in 4 straight. We could likely get swept, but I don't see this team getting blown out in any game.
